barack hussein obama to be president. the country chose barack hussein obama to be president twice. we picked him again a second time after watching him in action for four years, and then having a very good chance to pick a new guy instead. this will never happen again. barack obama will never run for office again. and we do not know who will succeed him as president in four years. but the honoring of the office of presidency today, again, entrusted to him, will forever be a day writ large, writ large by us by our generation, our country in our time. we did this. and turning around, a stream of people going the other direction, and taking the long view, taking it in, taking a look, just one more second. we are not going to see this again. joining us now is andrea mitchell, nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, host of "andrea mitchell reports" on msnbc, and a person who is very good at covering inaugurations. >> thank you for that. i love it. >> you have been my lode star for all the time that you have done this. but today, seeing you up there on the vip platform, working and inte

conservative ascend yancey, and what obama has in mind is i won't get everything done in these four years. i may have a republican house the entire time, but i can begin to build a movement and support for a set of ideas the way ronald reagan did so we can have more victories down the line. >> that's what keeps michael steel up at night. we have to leave it there for now. this is a live look at the washington national cathedral where president obama is attending the national prayer service. after the break, if his dpesic agenda wasn't ambitious enough, he faces a growing checklist abroad. can he cement his foreign policy legacy with less military and more diplomacy? we'll discuss next. hey, our salads.

answer. reagan, obama, less than 30 years, what's happened in america? >> i think, you know, f.d.r. once said that great presidents become great because they come to power at a moment when ideas in the life of the nation require clarification. and they offer that clarification. ronald reagan's rise was an answer to the excesses of the new deal and the great society. he has a man who brought the conversation from the first point being what can the state do to being what the market can do? i think what's happened in the last 30 years and what's happening right now is that we know in our hearts that the choices we face that you just alluded to, the gao report, the expensive healthcare. the expense of the entitlements, the idea that so much of our future is mortgaged and only growing higher is a tough choice. and we're not apparently ready as a people and certainly not as an administration, and the obama administration to make those hard choices. i think we are threading water in the united states. and i think president obama is in some ways a figure of a threading water are a. >> bill: trea

. >> last year, the obama administration had a package of recommendations that appeared to be dead on arrival. why? >> examples-simpson? >> i am assuming. -- is that the bulls-simpson? -- simpson-bowles? >> i am assuming. >> i think there was pushed back in the right way. the commission was focused on cuts and not investments. the great deficit in this country is the investment deficit, the investment in people and infrastructure. there were attempts to revive it. it was a super committee proposal. i think it is a good thing the super committee failed to reach an agreement. we will see where that goes. it was not a fair deal. there was so little revenue and so much padding. -- so much cutting. someone was writing the other day that the anti-tax mania is at an all-time low. reagan was willing to raise taxes. it shows how extreme. someone said the of the grover norquist may be the most powerful person in america. the new pledge he has held canada is to. he has held candidates -- the new pledge he has held the new candidates to is keeping millions -- it has a role to play in a country ri

commit to one another, must be equal, as well. >> reporter: but obama, four years ago, talked about the audacity of hope, now gives a nod to reality. reminding his most fervent supporters that progress requires compromise. >> we must act knowing that our work will be imperfect. we must act knowing that today's victories will be only partial. >> reporter: before he headed back into the capitol, president obama stopped to look in awe at that amazing view of the national mall. >> take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> reporter: afterwards, the obama family took in the parade in a decidedly less formal way. dancing, snapping photos. and even chewing gum. and while all those hundreds of thousands of people who filled the mall have now helped president obama win his last campaign, the last campaign he says he will ever run, he's still counting on their support building a grassroots organization to get things done. >>> and let's get to the balls now. and the show-stopping moment when the first lady stepped out in that red gown, dancing to jennifer hudson, singing on

constitutional challenge to the act this year. president obama's inaugural address yesterday, though, he recognizes the battle for voting rights isn't over. here's the president. >> obama: our journey is not complete a citizen is not forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. >> michael: now that he has been inaugurated, do you think voters going to the ballot is at risk. >> i think it is. the republicans are a minority party. they got the minority in the presidential and senate and over all house races they're not working with the demographic roots that are growing in this country, which are largely latinos. and it will make it impossible for them to break into that voting block. the only way they can win is by changing the rules. i know i can cite some great philosophers, but gary trudeau has been citing the politics that we'll just change the election by changes the votes and you can see it in dunes bury. there was no photo i.d. that was the way to diminish the vote of young people and african-americans and other minorities. what it did was so enrage the african-american

president barack obama for four years and why it was important to trust him once again. every single day of the campaign, she was a fierce advocate for president obama and democrats from all walks of life. whether it was tangling with republicans on tv, traveling to every corner of the country on behalf of our candidate, or raising the funds necessary to win, i was inspired by her tireless advocacy, the size of her heart, and the veer rosety -- her spirit. this is no surprise to any of you. being the youngest woman elected to the florida legislature, representing florida in congress, or her remarkable fight against breast cancer, our chair always exhibited courage and strength in the face of tremendous obstacles. that is why she is the chair our party needs as we begin president obama's second term. she'll be instrumental in the push for immigration reform, clean, renewable energy, reducing gun violence, and building an economy that lasts -- get this -- from the middle out. for all these reasons and many more, if gives me great pleasure to second the nomination of congresswoman wasserman-sc
